As a total '80s music geek, I am loving this story. Leave it to Geico to make this happen.

Believe it or not, "The Final Countdown" by Europe never made it higher than #8 in its original chart run back in 1987. That's all changed this year, according to a story in Billboard magazine, with Geico's commercial showing the band performing their trademark hit.

This song is becoming a chart-topper all over again in the digital era with over 30,000 downloads and a million-plus streams since the commercial debuted about 6 weeks ago. What's your take, are the song and commercial fun or just annoying? Let me know in the comments.

Personally, the only way this commercial could get any better for me is to also have the Geico cavemen in it.
